This beautifully bound edition contains the unabridged text of the four books of The Imitation of Christ — Useful Admonitions for a Spiritual Life, Admonitions Concerning the Interior Life, Interior Consolation, and The Sacrament of the Altar — translated by Sr. Mary Nazarene Prestofilippo, FSP. These books are broken down into chapters, each of which is followed by a prayer and reflection to apply the reading to everyday life. A helpful appendix is also included, offering reading suggestions organized by reader type and subject matter.
